Bomb squad called when Portland teen blows up science experiment
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Officers from the Portland police bomb squad were investigating a small blast scene Sunday outside Sitton Elementary School when a woman told them what happened.
She said her 16-year-old son blew up his science experiment with fireworks. It left a small divot in the grass.
Officers talked to the teen and determined there was no intent to damage property and no danger, so he was not charged.
